Temporary Bus Service Changes
Effective December 18, 2021

Weekday bus service will operate on Saturday schedules for most routes

MARTA is working to address a nationwide labor shortage that has resulted in canceled trips on many bus routes. On December 18th, we’ll change most of our bus routes to operate Saturday schedules on weekdays. This will provide more reliable scheduled service to allow customers to plan their trips, despite the reduction in service frequency.

MARTA continues to actively recruit new talent to join our team of MARTA Heroes so that we can work to restore weekday service levels in the future. MARTA will deploy operators as they are hired and trained so that regular weekday bus service for all routes can resume with a full complement of drivers. Learn more.

Planned service changes for Routes 12, 95, 194, & 196 that were previously scheduled for December 4, 2021 will now be implemented on December 18, 2021. Additional details will be added here in early December.

Service Information

Beginning Saturday, December 18, 2021, the majority of our bus routes will follow Saturday schedules on weekdays. This service plan will allow MARTA to operate with fewer canceled bus trips as we actively recruit additional bus operators and staff.

All bus routes will follow Saturday schedules on weekdays, except for the routes listed below.
